Peanuts Looking Good

Posted by romeethredge on May 24, 2013

Peanuts are coming up and are looking good. These last ones planted are coming up quicker. For a while we had slow emergence and a few fields that we didn’t get a stand in that had to be replanted maybe due to poor cold vigor and the erratic soil temperatures. We had 6 degree soil temperature drops in just a few days in early May.  Folks are watering peanuts to activate herbicides and thrips materials, and to ensure good stands.
